bring up rasmussen. >> and chuck todd yesterday on meet the press talking about the enthusiasm gap. >> reuters has obama up. >> so how do you read it this morning? >> romney has some momentum from the debate. i think the debate is a more powerful political force in the race than the unemployment numbers that came out. we were all talking about those on friday. but you had more than north of 60 million people watching these two guys on wednesday night and you see some momentum, democrats say the gap has narrowed in some states where obama had a lead. he's getting closer in most of the swing states. up two in rasmussen, down three in gallup. and the question is does this week continue that momentum. the vice president debate in the past has been critical for either accelerating or breaking the momentum one way or the other for the party in power. and we saw dick cheney came through twice for president bush, once in 2000 against joe lieberman when they were continuing the progress bush that in the first debate, second time was in breaking the momentum that john kerry had in 2004. and

the gwu poll today, right? and we'll get rasmussen -- >> i didn't see gw. i saw a "washington post" abc poll showed two points among likely voters nationally. >> in was two on gwu, too. politico was two points. rasmussen and gallup at 5 and rasmussen at 2. >> polls it show obama up 11 in swing states. that sounds high to me. but in any case, obama's ahead, romney has to change something. he has a chance to do it. >> all right, john harwood, thank you. >> today is the start of the fourth quarter. and joining us is teach stanley, chief economist for peerpont securities. the lead story is how trade is slowing around the world. all of europe's problems getting exported to the rest of the world. what do you think this means just in terms of the fourth quarter and maybe a look into next year? >> good morning, becky. well, i think right now the u.s. economy is really slow in part because of what you guys were just talking about, the election. i think a lot of businesses have gone to the sidelines and they're waiting to see as you all discuss, we have a huge choice to be made. and business

the romney roll continues. scott rasmussen has three polls showing a dead heat in battle ground states, hai, virginia, florida. even the liberal magazine "the new yorker" sees it on their front cover, mitt romney pulling a clint eastwood, debating an empty chair. first up, it was the tweet that was heard around the world. my good friend jack welch set off a social media firestorm. take a look at his tweet. "unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything. can't debate so change numbers, end quote. he's chase by accusing the white house of skewing the data to help president obama. earlier on cnbc, u.s. labor secretary fired back with this response. please take a listen. >> these are our best trained and best skilled individuals that have been working in the bls and it's really ludicrous to hear that kind of statement. >> here now is the legendary jack welch, former ge chairman, ceo and great friend of "the kudlow report." it's great to see you. i don't feel like defending obama, i don't feel like defending the labor secretary but i got to tell you, i worked in the

points to being ahead by 4 points. the rasmussen poll out this morning also conducted post-debate that show them tied. rasmussen has a reputation for being a poll that makes republicans look good. gallup is considered a nonpartisan poll, not one with a tilt one way or the other. they show president obama up five points, though much closer for the post-debate portion of the sample. president obama was on the west coast today courting latinos, and he gave some remarks about the state of the economy and how it affects latinos. >> no matter who you are and what you look like or where you come from, this is the place where you can make it if you try. today we have more work to do to fulfill that promise. the recession we're fighting our way back from is still taking a toll, but thanks to the strength and character of american people, we are making progress. >> now, of course, latinos are one of the reasons president obama has been doing well in some of the western states like colorado, nevada, new mexico, as well as florida. we now have to see gin the smift in polls whether he can cont

at rasmussen over the last week, there's been days when they're neck and neck. you look across the board, it's very close. >> i'm on the phone and i can tell you the polling numbers off the top of my head, you are wrong. in ohio, he's down. in virginia, he's down. tell me the battleground states where governor romney is ahead. tell me the one. >> in ohio, he's within the margin of error. in florida, he's within the margin of error. and again, if it's such a horrific campaign, and you know a lot about horrific campaigns, then he wouldn't be as close as he is. going back to the point about scratching beneath the surface, mitt romney was the one that went over and over again through specifics. president obama couldn't go anywhere near his own record. and you know why, because he's failed for four years. he's got nothing to talk about. all president obama could talk about is mitt romney's plan because he doesn't have any plan of his own. all he keeps talking about is how badly mitt romney would do, not how well he's done. >> the purchases think by one debate performance this election h

by monday. we're not quite there yet. it's tied in the rasmussen poll at 48 which featured in the weekend post-debate poll. romney was ahead by two points. there was some impact from the unemployment numbers on friday, you look at the data since the debate it's a 47-47 tie. there's big events coming up. the first debate was the biggest thing since the conventions. now this thursday on the 11th you've got paul ryan and vice president joe biden. this is going to be very important for obama's effort to stave off romney. then on the 16th you got the second obama-romney debate. on the 22nd final obama-romney debate. then the last friday before the election one more jobs number. my own inclination the job numbers aren't quite as "game change"ing for debates as for the reason voters know how they feel about the economy. they don't need a government report. it does get a lot of attention and we got a race that's plainly at this point even though obama still has a slight advantage in the battleground states this race can go either way. >> interesting. then we got the governor, of course, s

between rasmussen consistently and some of the other, whether it's quinnipiac or the other ones. that's all we got, though. and we have to talk about them, i guess. i take all of them with such a huge grain of salt. >> well, and joe, there's reason for all of us to take them with a bigger grain of salt than we used to in the past for this reason. it's becoming harder and harder to poll because response rates are down. >> recording. i hang up immediately. they're trying to give me a cruise. do you ever pick up the phone and it's -- and i go no, captain. i don't want to go. >> there are two different questions on the table, joe. one is the accuracy of telephone polling. it's getting harder and harder to do. most pollsters think we're going to move to online. but the second is the exit polls. >> i remember how downtrodden bush was in the afternoon. john kerry -- they were toasting mr. president in boston. >> this is where some of the participation rate questions also come into play. these are in person interviews. people with different views, if they perceive the interviewer is coming from

economy remains by far the top issue on voters' minds. a recent rasmussen poll shows the economy as very important as to how they will cast their ballot. here is dave goldman and keith mcauliffe. dave goldman, we're going to have to switch this a little bit. bear with me. the new today coming out of iran is potentially very important. as you may know, their currency, the rial, has dropped 40% in the past week. black market currency traders and others are rioting in the streets. they had to bring in special riot police to do this. what's going on? is that country imploding over its money collapse? >> larry, i very much doubt it. the immediate effect of the shortage of foreign exchange is to concentrate power in the hands of the people who have the foreign exchange, namely the regime. no one else has the guns and money to oppose them. the immediate impact will be to convince ahmadinejad and his gang that they need to be all the more aggressive to develop nuclear weapons so they might solve their economic problems by intervening to help their shiite brothers in dubai. >> keith mcauliffe, $1
